LDC Elementary Template Tasks
LDC Elementary Template Tasks

This collection provides a first set of template tasks for implementing the LDC strategy at elementary grades 4 and 5 in ELA, social studies, and science. The LDC approach involves writing in response to reading, so templates are constructed to ensure teaching tasks engage students in instruction for both reading and writing. LDC template tasks are fill-in-the-blank “shells” built off the CCSS that allow teachers to insert the texts to be read, writing to be produced, and content to be addressed to create high-quality student assignments.
